This upscale brand got its start in 1906 as the Italian chain Compagnia Italiana Grandi Alberghi, which included some of the most famous luxury hotels in Italy. Nearly a century later in 1994, the Starwood Group (which is now a part of Marriott International) purchased CIGA and its entire portfolio, which had expanded to include high-end hotels in Spain, Austria and Sardinia. Having been rebranded to better showcase what these hotels are all about, The Luxury Collection now comprises more than 100 hotels across 41 countries, including the United States. The amenities and decor in each property spotlights the history, the architecture and the culture of its surrounding city: For example, the spa at Hacienda Temozon in Mexico's Yucatan region offers treatments inspired by ancient Maya traditions, while The Liberty in Boston still retains some of the architectural elements of the former Charles Street Jail. And at each hotel, guests can expect excellent customer service, which is what earned The Luxury Collection properties several spots on our Best Hotels in the USA, Best Hotels in Europe and Best Hotels in Mexico rankings. What's more, because The Luxury Collection falls under the Marriott banner, frequent visitors can redeem their Marriott Bonvoy points at any property.

    Located along Venice's Grand Canal, The Gritti Palace, A Luxury Collection Hotel is nestled in the heart of the action. Here, guests gather for meals on the famous Gritti Terrace to watch gondolas and vaporetti (water taxis) transport tourists and locals around the City of Water. Inside, luxurious touches appear everywhere: Murano glass chandeliers hang from the ceiling, Lorenzo Rubelli fabrics bedeck the accommodations, art adorns the walls and the property's original terrazzo floors, from when the palace was commissioned to be built by Doge of Venice Andrea Gritti in 1475, can be found throughout. Today, the hotel houses The Gritti Epicurean School, the Gritti Spa, the elegant Club del Doge Restaurant and 82 restored rooms and suites – 10 of which were inspired by well-known guests like Ernest Hemingway and Peggy Guggenheim. Standard rooms feature glass chandeliers, antique furniture, marble bathrooms, complimentary Wi-Fi and incredibly comfortable bed linens, according to recent guests. Visitors were also impressed with the impeccable service, gourmet cuisine and well-equipped fitness center. And while staying at this hotel will cost you a pretty penny, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points and save some money at this property.

    Who would have guessed that luxury could exist in such a quaint destination as the seaside city of San Sebastian? According to recent guests of the Hotel Maria Cristina, you'll find that and so much more. The grandeur of this property is immediately evident before stepping through its front doors. The hotel takes up an entire street block and illuminates the waters it towers over when its golden facade is lit up at night. Rooms are equally eye-catching but more subdued: Expect crisp white linens backed by tufted headboards, sleek wood furnishings and glass chandeliers, as well as 40-inch Samsung TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi and marble bathrooms with deep soaking tubs. Outside of the rooms, guests can take advantage of the on-site fitness and business center, a 24-hour concierge and multiple dining options (the food at which was a favorite of recent guests). But what stuck in travelers' minds the most was the staff's incredible service and the hotel's unbeatable location – guests have just a short walk to the beach.

    #11 in Best The Luxury Collection Hotels
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2754 reviewsTripAdvisor (2754)

    The son of Ulysses S. Grant (the 18th president of the United States) opened this luxury downtown hotel in 1910. Today, THE US GRANT, A Luxury Collection Hotel, San Diego gives guests a taste of Old World glamour coupled with modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs, minifridges and marble bathrooms. The hotel also houses a fitness center and The Grant Grill, which is critically acclaimed and known for its fresh Californian cuisine. However, this Luxury Collection property probably isn't the ideal hotel for sun-seekers, since it's pretty far from San Diego's most popular beaches. On the other hand, it's quite close to many of the city's top attractions, and if you're a Marriott Bonvoy member looking to redeem or accrue reward points, this could be the place for you.

    #12 in Best The Luxury Collection Hotels
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2719 reviewsTripAdvisor (2719)

    This Luxury Collection property is so stunning it could easily be mistaken for a Spanish palace. Located in the scenic Santa Cruz neighborhood of Seville, the Hotel Alfonso XIII has a knack for putting guests in a trance with its artistic, Andalusian architecture. Common areas are supported by marble arches and columns, frescos line the ceilings and intricate ceramic artwork adorns the walls. And that's just the lobby. Rooms are a little more modest, but still feature eye-catching details like Moorish arches over beds, ornate glass light fixtures and patterned marble floors. Standard accommodations feature views of the property's pretty patio and come equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi, LCD TVs and minibars. The Hotel Alfonso's flora-filled patio was a favorite among recent guests, as was the dining experience at the Restaurante San Fernando. There's also Ena by Carles Abellán, which primarily serves tapas, and the art deco-style Bar Americano. Should you want to work off some of Spain's notoriously hearty fare, there's a gym on-site and a pool surrounded by trees (a traveler favorite). Outside the Alfonso, guests can find city's best attractions within a stone's throw of the property, including Real Alcázar and Plaza de España. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    As its name suggests, Augustine, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Prague sits in the Czech Republic's capital city near top sights like the Charles Bridge and Prague Castle. This hotel boasts 101 guest rooms and suites spread across seven attached buildings dating back to 1284.

If you're an art lover, consider booking the Fresco Suite, which features 19th-century frescoes and original parquet floors. Once you've settled in, explore outside your accommodations. You can savor European bites in Augustine Restaurant, sip on a homemade brew in the Refectory Bar, break a sweat in the 24-hour fitness center or enjoy a spa treatment at Augustine Spa. All received rave reviews from past guests. However, the standouts at this pricey property are its superb location and top-notch service. From the restaurant staff to the concierges and bellmen, recent visitors said the hotel's employees went out of their way to ensure they had a memorable stay. Some travelers warn, though, that because of its central location noise can seep into the rooms.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1811 reviewsTripAdvisor (1811)

    The Palace Hotel first welcomed guests in 1875 as the world's largest and most luxurious hotel. But the earthquake of 1906 destroyed the property; the building that stands now was constructed in 1909. Still, the Palace wins guests over with its historical charm: The lobby draws attention with marble floors and high ceilings, and the guest rooms house more contemporary furnishings (alongside amenities such as high-speed internet access). But to truly experience the Palace in all its timeless glory, sit down to afternoon tea underneath the glass ceiling and crystal chandeliers of the Garden Court. (For dinner, head to the Pied Piper Restaurant, which serves traditional American fare.) There's also a pool and fitness center on-site, which is perfect for those looking to recharge. Guests love the luxurious interiors and appreciate the cozy guest rooms. The staff also get a thumbs up as well for their warm, welcoming attitudes. What's more, as a member of the Luxury Collection hotel family, the Palace gladly welcomes guests looking to pay with or earn rewards through the Marriott Bonvoy program.
